Mammalian Sensory Systems
Organizer(s): Stephen Liberles, David D. Ginty, Jeffrey R. Holt and Melanie Samuel
Date: March 15 - 19, 2019
Location: Allen Institute, Seattle, WA, USA
Sponsored by Allen Institute and Merck & Co., Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Our basic external sensory systems - touch, taste, vision, hearing and smell - enable us to perceive the world around us, and other internal sensory systems enable us to perceive the secret world within us. Recent advances have revealed the molecular logic of how some sensory systems work, while other sensory systems remain uncharted. Fields of sensory biology often maintain separate cultures, and are at varying levels of maturity, with different frontiers, unknowns and perspectives. This conference brings leading experts from different sensory fields together, and reviews conceptual and technical advances achieved in one sensory system that may enable new findings in others. It highlights recent advances in each external sense: vision, olfaction, taste, hearing and touch/pain/temperature sensation, as well as new developments in the emerging field of internal organ sensation. Topics include: 1) Receptors and sensory mechanisms, 2) Neural circuits, 3) Behavioral and physiological responses, and 4) The genetic basis of sensory deficits.
